7 Mukilteo teachers earn national certification | School brief


December 23, 2015

Seven Mukilteo teachers are among 329 teachers statewide to achieve certification from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.

The state of Washington has the largest group of new national board certified teachers in the nation for the third consecutive year. Washington ranks fourth, nationwide, with a total of 8,614 certified teachers in the state.

Earning the certification from Mukilteo this year were four teachers from three elementary schools and three teachers from two middle schools.

They are: Tammy Dittoe at Challenger Elementary, Donna Riviera at Explorer Middle School, Mi-Young Hwang at Mukilteo Elementary, Mary Kate Olson and Trina Whitaker at Olivia Park Elementary, and Mari Atkinson and Laura Lewis at Olympic View Middle School.

National board certification is the most respected professional certification available in education. It was designed to develop, retain and recognize accomplished teachers and to generate ongoing improvement in schools nationwide.

While teacher licensure systems set the basic requirements to teach in each state, board certification shows that teachers have developed and demonstrated the advanced knowledge, skills and practices required of an outstanding educator.
